Another Lowe's Death cube and Sundew

Ok I happened to buy one of these sundews too. I removed the little plastic sheath inside the cube. and added some rain water from outside. Now that the leafs are touching the cube side. should i remove it from the cube? Living in PA, it's not as humid, so i'm a bit concerned. I have been opening the lid, cuz i figure no bugs could get in. Should i consider repotting into a slightly bigger pot? also i notice if i don't leave lid on, there are no dew drops on the leaves. I also don't know wat kind of drosera this is. I was also able to add some pics.

I've had this cube for about 5 days now. At least it's not dead lol.

Leave the lid off, give it bright filtered light and stand back! It looks like a small d. Adelae to me. These things grow like weeds! Is it in a POT in the cube? If so, take the pot OUT of the cube and sit in in a shallow tray with about an inch of rain or distilled water only. Transplants easily and produces MANY BABY PLANTS. Congrats!

Definitely take the plant out! D. adelae grow big. My single D. adelae is over 7 inches in diameter.
